I've not seen any threads dedicated to the comparisons. I know the homepod is not out yet but we mostly know of the features. Given the price of the HomePod, it being 350 dollars, compared to Echo's at 99 (been discounted to 79), I'm having a hard time seeing any advantages. Plus for me Siri seems inferior to what the others can do. I have no doubt the sound from the HomePod will be the best. I have the echo and I'm very impressed with its capability and I feel given the lower cost, I can easily justify placing multiple echos around my house and further embracing the whole smart house philopshy by getting other home automation technology. Google Home. I threw that in there just because its Google, but by the same token, I don't really like Google Home, because its Google. Thoughts on the HomePod as it competes against the other smart speakers.
